Raynor catches the eye

Shannon Raynor announced his candidacy for a spot among St George's Cup Match participants with a thunderous unbeaten century against arch rivals St David's during the Turkey Barnes Trophy match at Wellington Oval on Saturday, spurring the home team to a 13-run victory.

Coming in at number six, Raynor made his presence felt on the basis of 12 fours and five monstrous heaves beyond the walls, steering St George's away from trouble at 50-for-four, first combining for 21 runs with Allan Douglas for the fifth wicket, but making a much greater impression with Jade Darrell for the sixth wicket.

Darrell impressed with 41 runs of his own during a 110-run partnership, his runs coming from 48 balls and having four fours.

Also making an impression was Rudell Pitcher, who took four wickets for the visitors, his ten overs costing 46 runs.

Pitcher capped a superb all round showing, though in defeat, tallying 79 runs with the bat, belting seven fours and four sixes from 80 balls as St David's mustered 197-for-nine in reply and likely might have even stolen the match had Kameron Fox not departed early for a prior scheduled engagement without ever holding a bat.

All of St David's' batsmen got starts while batting, however to a man threw away such groundwork.

Wickets were evenly shared among St George's' bowlers as four took two wickets apiece, including Lateef Trott, Kijuan Franks, Onias Bascome and Macai Simmons.
